Caldy claim victory at Chants Ave

Hull were caught cold and Caldy scored after one minute and from the restart Hull kicked the ball straight out. Caldy opted for a quick line out as both packs ran to the centre expecting a scrum allowing Caldy acres of room to score a second try after just three
Caldy’s wingers Ben Jones and Nick Royle scored the first two tries with centre Gav  Robert’s converting the first try.
With Hull in a state of shock Caldy looked as though they might pile on the points but Hull worked their way back into the game playing open rugby.
In the 12th minute Hull established good field position and after extracting a penalty from a scrum they took a lineout which was halted illegally and Hull were awarded a penalty try.
Caldy responded immediately and robbed Hull of the ball from the kick off and set up an efficient driving maul to see back row man Adam Aigkobte credited with the unconverted try.
Hull were soon back on the attack with Simon Humberstone orchestrating a series of penetrating back moves. Hull ‘s pressure saw them awarded two kickable penalties in the closing minutes of the half with full back Reece Dean covering one to see Hull just seven points adrift at half-time.
Hull came out for the second half looking to get on even terms. After 55 minutes, from a scrum near half way, Hull broke left and full back Reece Dean put Keane Naylor away on a 45-yard run to the line. Reece Dean’s touchline conversion levelled the score at 17-17.
Caldy regained their composure and the lead when a forward drive seemed about to be halted when sub centre Callum Ridgway emerged to run 30 yards for a good try after 59 minutes. Gav Robert’s conversion seeing his side ahead by seven points.
Hull were always in the game but when they lost the ball near their own 10-yard line Caldy’s centre Robert’s raced in and converted his own try after 76 minutes to see his side home 31-14.
